Director Siva, basking in the runaway success of Pongal release Viswasam, is all set to join hands with Suriya for his next project, which will be bankrolled by Studio Green. While an official announcement regarding the project is yet to be made, reliable sources close to the production house have already confirmed the collaboration.
The film, which is yet-untitled, would mark the first-time collaboration of Siva and Suriya. If everything goes as planned, this project will most likely go on the floors from the end of this year.
Currently on the verge of wrapping up KV Anandâ€™s Kaappaan, in which he plays a bodyguard, Suriya is all set to begin work on his upcoming film, dubbed as Suriya 38, with Sudha Kongara.
If everything goes as planned, the regular shooting of Suriya 38 will start from April and the makers have confirmed over the weekend that the film will be co-produced by Oscar winning Guneet Monga, who is foraying into Tamil with this project.
Recently, Suriyaâ€™s 2D Entertainment, which is bankrolling the project, welcomed Guneet on board as co-producer via a tweet.
In an interview to The Hindu, Guneet confirmed signing Suriya 38, and also has revealed that it will be based on the life of Captain Gopinath of Air Deccan. The project will have music by GV Prakash Kumar and the makers are yet to reveal the rest of the cast and crew. Suriya also has a project with Singam series fame Hari in the pipeline.
In early 2017, Sudha pitched a story idea which Suriya really liked. Since he was busy Singam 3, Thaana Serntha Kootam and NGK, he was unable to sign up immediately.
Recently he wrapped shooting for Selvaraghavan's NGK, which also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi in lead roles. Produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, the project is gearing up for a summer release. The industry grapevine is that the film could be a political drama and Suriya may play a leader.
